Lower
2. If the floor is uneven, adjust the adjustable feet as required.
(do not insert pieces of wood etc. under the feet)
Make sure that all four feet are stable and resting on the floor and
then check that the appliance is perfectly level. (use a spirit level)
※ After the washer is level, tighten the lock nuts up towards of the base of
the washer. All lock nuts must be tightened.
NOTE
Adjustable feet
Timber or suspended type flooring may contribute to excessive
vibration and unbalance errors.
Adjustable feet
In the case that the washing machine is installed on a raised
platform, it must be securely fastened in order to eliminate the risk
that it might fall off.
❊ Diagonal Check
When pushing down the edges of the washing machine top plate diagonally, the machine
should not move up and down at all. (Please, check both of two directions)
If machine rocks when pushing the machine top plate diagonally, adjust the feet again.
Concrete floors
• The installation surface must be clean, dry and level.
• Install washer on a flat hard floor.
Tile floors (Slippery floors)
• Position each foot on the Tread Mate and level the machine to suit. (Cut Tread Mate into 70x70 mm
sections and stick the pieces on to the dry tile where machine is to be placed.)
※ Tread Mate is a self adhesive material used on ladders & steps that prevents slipping.
Wooden floors (Suspended floors)
Rubber Cup
• Wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration.
• To prevent vibration we recommend you place rubber cups under each foot,
at least 15mm thick under the washer, secured to at least 2 floor beams with ※ It can be purchased from
screws.
hardware suppliers.
• If possible install the washer in one of the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.
※ Insert the rubber cups to reduce vibration.
※ You can obtain the rubber cups (p/no.4620ER4002A) from the LG svc dept.
Important!
• Proper placement and levelling of the washer ensure long, regular and reliable operation.
• The washer must be absolutely horizontal and stand firmly in position.
• It must not “Seesaw” across corners under load.
• The installation surface must be clean, free from floor wax and other lubricant coatings.
• Do not let the feet of the washer get wet. If feet of the washer get wet, slipping may occur.

C
are before washing
Before the first washing
Select a cycle (COTTON 60°C, add a half load of detergent) allow the unit to wash
without clothing. This will remove residues and water from the drum that may have been left during
manufacturing.
Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your garment and
how it should be washed.
2. Sorting
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint transfer can
occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily soiled items with lightly soiled
one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
Wash lint producers and lint collectors
separately.
3. Caring before loading
Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more than half the
total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are empty.
Items such as nails, hair clip, matches, pens, coins
and keys can damage both your washer and your
clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to make sure that
these items don’t snag on other clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing a little detergent
dissolved in water onto stains like collars and cuffs to
help shift dirt.
• Check the folds of the flexible gasket (gray) and
remove any small articles,if any.
• Check inside of the drum and remove any left items
in it for next wash cycle.
• Remove any clothing or items on the flexible gasket
to prevent clothing and the gasket damages.

A dding detergent
3. Detergent dosage
• The detergent should be used according to the
instruction of the detergent manufacture.
• If too much detergent is used, too many suds
can occur and this will decrease the washing
result or cause heavy load to the motor.
• Use powder detergent only for the front
loading washer.
❇ If suds occur too much, pleas reduce the
detergent amount.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted
for water temperature, water hardness,
size and soil level of the load. For best
results, avoid oversudsing.
❋ Tips
Full load : according to
manufacturer’s recommendation.
Part load : 3/4 of the normal
amount.
Minimum load : 1/2 of full load.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser
at the beginning of the cycle.
5. Using the Tablets
1) Open the door and Tablets into the
drum.
4. Water softener
2) Load the laundry into the drum.
• A water softener, such as Anti limescale
(Clagon) can be used to cut down on the
use of detergent in extremely hard water
areas. Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
3) Close the door.
• Use the quantity of detergent as for soft
water.
